Beef Kebabs with Peanut Dipping Sauce


  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 Tbsp light brown sugar
  • 4 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 ½ lb. sirloin steak, 1 1/2 in. thick, cut into 1 in. pieces
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp minced ginger
  • ¼ tsp. ground red pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1 in. squares
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1 in. squares
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 1 in. wedges

Heat grill to high. Combine 1/2 cup of soy sauce, 2 Tbsp of sugar and 2 garlic cloves in shallow dish; add sirloin and stir to coat. Let stand 15 minutes, stirring once.

Meanwhile combine remaining soy sauce, sugar and garlic and the peanut butter, 3/4 cup water, lime juice, ginger and ground red pepper in a small heavy saucepan. Cook over high heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils; remove from heat.

Thread sirloin, bell peppers, and onion onto 4 12-in. skewers and grill, turning occasionally, until beef reaches desired doneness, 10 minutes for medium rare. Serve with peanut sauce.

Spectacular is an excellent word for describing this dinner. Being that it is a grilled recipe, the hubby took care of the dinner. It was followed completely with no variation. The peanut butter sauce is so good that I would like to mix some up to keep in the fridge with the regular condiments. There was someone at the table licking out their sauce bowls (and it was not the children).

Old Bay Grilled Potatoes


  • 1 lb. medium red potatoes, halved
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley

Prepare grill for indirect-heat cooking. In foil bag, combine potatoes, oil, garlic and seasoning; seal edge.

Place bag over indirect heat on grill; cook until tender, 1 hour, turning bag every 15 minutes. Transfer to serving bowl; stir in parsley.

Although I was looking forward to seeing how these turned out on the grill…the hubby decided he didn’t want to fix them that way. Instead they got seasoned and baked in the oven. Still they turned out soft and tasty, I just thought it would be nice to have an entire meal that was prepared on the grill.
